Our Two Cents
The Mesh Tex 3.0 jacket is slightly re-styled (as compared to the Mesh-Tex 2 version) and now comes with CE rated “Evolution” type armor in the shoulders and elbows. This armor is a semi-rigid “turtle shell” type armor that is very substantial. The outer shell of this jacket is a full mesh design which allows the air to blow right through the jacket. A nice feature of this jacket (and most other mesh jackets) is the removable waterproof/windproof liner. This liner is super handy for cool mornings or rides that pass through temperature extremes throughout a day (such as mountain passes). You can put the liner under the jacket and be comfortable in cooler weather. It’s also handy to shed water in case of a shower. Take the “View Larger Pictures” link above to see some good close-up pictures of this jacket’s many features.
